Ghanaians were among those watching as The Three Lions confirmed their place in the last four of the global showpiece on Saturday

Somehow, Ghanaians hold belief that their beloved Black Stars could match The Three Lions of colonial masters England on any day. 

A 1-1 draw in an international friendly at Wembley in 2011 has only further cemented that feeling.

Having failed to cross paths competitively when Ghana appeared at consecutive World Cup tournaments between 2006 and 2014, a chance to possibly settle the debate at this year's fiesta was spurned as the Black Stars failed to qualify for the gathering. 

England, though, are present in Russia and utter blazing on all cylinders. 

On Saturday, The Three Lions booked a place in the World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 28 years following a 2-0 victory over Sweden

Harry Maguire opened the scoring in the 30th minute with a header, before Dele Alli added the second after the interval. 

As Ghanaians hold on for that big 'decider', they had almost no option than to watch The Three Lions strut their stuff against the Swedes on Saturday.
